getting world government onto 
the ballot in November elections 

Results of the canvassing for 
signatures to place the question

rendum, are now being tal- 

Tn every congressional district 
where it is called for by 1200 
--.tered voters the issue will 
be presented at the polls and if 
carried will oblige Congressmen 
to support federation; if enough 
districts in Massachusetts up- 
hold the question, the decision 
will be binding on senators elect- 
Ann Cleland, Alma Wejsberg, 
Jan Young and Hester Spencer, 
chairmen of the World Federa-

ices were held in the Houghton 
Memorial Chapel Sunday, May 
19, at 5 p.m. 

Mrs. Hilda F. Wagner, head

New Dean of Freshmen 

Is Miss J. MePherrin, 

Former Naval Officer 

Mrs. Wilma A. Kerby-Miller 
has resigned her position as 
Dean of Freshman and Chair- 
man of the Board of Admissions 
at Wellesley to become Dean of 
Instruction at Radcliffe. Mrs. 
Horton announced in Chapel 
May 18. Miss Jeanette MePher- 
rin, formerly Director of Ad- 
missions and Counselor to 
Freshmen at Scripps College, 
will take over the office of Dean 
of Freshmen here July 1; a new 
Director of Admissions has not 
yet been appointed. 

Mrs. Kerby-Miller "came to 
Wellesley as the wife of a new 
instructor in English Composi- 
tion in 1939," Mrs. Horton de- 
clared. After teaching in the 
Departments of English Compo- 
sition and English Literati 
she was appointed to her ad- 
ministrative posts in 1942. "She 
undertook the work with imag- 
ination, insight, wisdom, good 
humor." Mrs. Horton remarked, 
"and all the other virtues of 
which we wish Radcliffe had 
never heard!" The position of 
Dean of Instruction is a new 
office at Radcliffe; Mrs. Kerby- 
Miller will be working with the 
new curriculum there, and with 
the new advisory system for 
upperclass stud. 

Before coming to Wellesley. 
Mrs. Kerby-Miller was instruct- 
or in English at the University 
of Chicago and adviser in the 
College. She received her B.A. 
from Rockford College, her M.A. 
and Ph.D. from the University 
of Chicago. 

Miss MePherrin. in addition to 
her position at Scripps College, 
had taught at Kent School in 
Denver and at Reed College. She 
has had a fellowship for study 
at Sevres, France, and was an 
officer in the U. S. Naval Re- 
serve for two years and a half. 
Miss MePherrin received her 
B.A. from Scripps College and 
her M.A. from Claremont Col- 
lege. Her sister is a graduate 
of Wellesley, class of 1930.

particularly wheat and rice. The

it seems important to have an 
administrative officer who can 
work on this in order to be sure 
that the college will do as much 
as possible for its foreign mem- 
bers and put them in a position 
to contribute as much as possible 
to the college."

1947 UNLESS— 

On April 30, 1918, when the 
organization was constituted as 
an "agreement between the fac- 
ulty and students of Wellesley 
College concerning the Welles- 
ley College Government Associa- 
tion", it was made up of a two- 
house legislature and judiciary. 

The first Senate meeting, April 
29 of that year, was held in 
Pierce Memorial Room of the 
Library with President Pendle- 
ton attending. Most important 
issue of that first year seemed 
to be wartime curtailment of stu- 
dent activities with clubs asked 
to "consider justification of their 
existence" and societies required 
to modify their programs. It 
was seriously suggested that 
Tree Day took an unjustifiable

the vacancies created by the re- 
tirement of Mr. Frederic CurtiSS, 
President Sills of Bowdoin. Dr. 
Boynton Merrill, and Judge Sarah 
Soffel, alumnae trustees. The 
Board also voted six additional 
appointments to the faculty. 

Mr. W. Howard Chase, elected 
a trustee, is Director of Public 
Relations for General Foods, 
New York. Previously he was Di- 
rector of Public Services for Gen- ' 

on the Sabbath was repeatedly 

argued and a "Committee on the ! cral M,,ls - Inc - in Minneapolis.

with creation of district courts, 
while further changes were made 
in the judicial system in 1938-39,

meetings were begun.

In this week's News, the President of Col- 
lege Government presents an outline of the 
existing structure oJ the organization and rails 
for an all-college ' Town Meeting" tomorrow 
to discuss it. Most of as, even during these 
last few days of quizzes and papers, should 
have time to examine the diagram thoughtfully 
and to go to the meeting tomorrow knowing 
our opinions and prepared to express them. 

The present structure of C.G. was planned 
carefully, year- ago, with a view to establish- 
ing a governmental system which would be 
democratic and workable. Most important, it 
was to be a college government, not just a pow- 
erless student government. It was to include 
members of the administration, faculty, and 

Student body, who would eon-idci roller issues 
from all points of view; action, when it was 

taken, would be backed not just by the stu- 
dents, or just by the administration, but by 
the lollege as a whole. 

Recently there has been considerable feeling 
thai College Government does not adequately 
represent the entire college community. Pos- 
itively, this feeling lias been evident in direct 
criticism of C.G. organization; negatively, it 
can be seen in apathy and in frank ignorance 
of the member-hip and functions of C.G. organs. 

New does nol advocate change simply For 
the sake of change. We are in college, after 
all, primarily to he educated; we have no time 
to spend experimenting with novel systems of 
government. And to represent the college gov- 
ernment organization as completely unstable 
would be ludicrous. We have suggested, how- 
ever, aspects of the government which we be- 
lieve should be improved. These suggestions, 
as well as other, which may come up in dormi- 
tory "hash sessions" this evening will provide 
a basis for tomorrow's discussion.. 

Town Meeting" has been called to give the 
members of the college an opportunity to say 
what they think. Perhaps aftej careful eon- 
sideration we will decide that no action needs 
to be taken; more probably some alterations 

will be found to be in order But whatever 
we think, let's -how that we do think.

day perhaps the most conspicu- 
ous aspect of our domestic rela- 
tions has been the mounting ten- 
sion in labor-management rela- 
tions. The presen time is a vital 
one in our battle of reconversion 
and the fight to head off infla- 
tions. The present time is a vital 
may bring a new wave of re- 
quests for increases which would 
start an upward motion of wages 
and prices and bring on disas- 
trous inflation. 

Last week labor-management 
problems reached an all-time 
crisis. After ten weeks of federal 
efforts to work out an agreee- ! 
ment, the deadline for a railroad ' 
strike was set for five o'clock ; 
Saturday afternoon. Then drama- 
tically only a few minutes before I 
five o'clock the strike order was 
rescinded and the strike post- 
poned for five days. In addition 
there is a possibility of a renewal 
of the coal strike and of a walk- 
out tentatively set for June in the 
shipping industry. 

Because of strikes, production 
has lagged dangerously. For ex- 
ample automobile production 
which had been expected to reach 
the pre-war rate of 3,577,292 cars 
annually by last March was act- 
ually at the rate of only 750,000 
annually for the week ended 
May 11. 

Last Friday President Truman 
took over the railroads in a last- 
minute attempt to avert a strike. 
This seizure order came after a 
failure of negotiations to settle 
a wage dispute between rail-, 
roads and two of the most power- 
ful raid unions: The Brotherhood 
of Railroad Trainmen and the 
Brotherhood of Locomotive En- 

Slowly last Monday miners be- 

gan the trak back to the bitumin- 
ous mines under the truce John 
L. Lewis had authorized on May 
10. Should Mr. Lewis call the 
miners out again next Saturday, 
there is little question that they 
would do his bidding. On Mon- 
day there was a note of optimism 
I when the mine owners agreed to 
, pay three million dollars in back 
over-time claimed by the miners. 
But on the major union demand— 
for a health and welfare fund— 
I the stalemate held. Instead of a 
ten-cent royalty on each ton of 
coal mined, Mr. Lewis asked for 
a seven per cent levy on mine 
payrolls. Mr. Lewis also insisted 
that the fund should be admin- 
istered exclusively by the union. 
Rejecting Mr. Lewis' demand un- 
equivocally the operators called 
it "a new social theory and 
philosophy" which should be 
taken up by public legislative 
bodies" rather than by industry. 
Even if the operators and the 
unions should be able to reach an 
agreement on the welfare fund, 
the question of wages would re- 
main. But what seems most cru- 
cial in the present dispute is that 
the President has no authority 
to force men to return to their 
jobs in Government-seized plants. 
In Congress there are several 
ideas as to strike legislation. 
Some seek to amend the Wagner 
National Labor Relations Act. 
Others insist on more drastic 
legislation as for example seek- 
ing to outlaw employer payments 
to health and welfare funds. 
Others are trying to head off any 
legislation. At any rate, it seems 
vital to our economic future to 
find a better formula for resolv- 
ing labor-management differ- 
ences. We owe it to our returned 
service men and to our pledge 
to raise the standard of living. 


No 1917 "Legenda"? 
To the Editor: 

es! That is correct. There will 
be no Legenda for 1947 unless 
Wellesley students agree to back 
the 1946 Legenda as they have 
always been counted upon to do 
in other years. Here are the 
facts with which your '46 year 
book is confronted: 

IDA superior year book on a 
far more extravagent scale than 
usual for the same price as last 
i/'in's book. 

(2) 250 copies yet to be sold. 

(•'{) A serious financial prob- 
lem results from these unsold 
books. Let us examine these facts 
more closely, in the above order: 
(1) The 1946 year book has gone 
to the large pre-war size. It has 
broken tradition in order to 
make this an all-college book 
packed with pictures of all four 
classes. More organizations are 
represented than have been in 
the past four years. There is 
an original layout system of 
both the photographs and the

Part of Mowlli, Lead 
In Jungle Pageant 

Weekend weather conditions 
which rained out Hansel and 
Gretel in what was to be Wei- 
lesley's first post-war Float 
Night, did not dampen the Tree 
Day Ceremony, held Monday, 
May 20, at 4:30. 

The class crew races, the "W," 
and the lighted float that were 
to have told the tale of "Hansel 
and Gretel" will have to wait 
until next year for their official 
return to Wellesley tradition. 
Tree Day, however, was only 
postponed, and many weekend 
visitors stayed over to see the 
ceremony of tree-planting and 
the dance pageant on the green 
on Monday. 

Severance Green was trans- 
formed into "the far-off jungles 
of India, where the days are hot, 
the foliage lush; where a wolf, 
or cat, or baby hippo means a 
wolf and cat and baby hippo; 
and where a little boy named 
Mowgli lived among the popula- 
tion of animals in the forest, 
even as one of them." 

Most of this jungle atmosphere 
was created by the dancing of 
Mowgli, Fuzzy Glassenburg '46, 
his it "her. Lucy Venable '48. and 
his animal friends in the Tree 
Day Dance Pageant of Rudyavd 
Kipling's "Jungle Book." 

After the entrance of the 
classes, ■ singing their class 
marching songs, Tree Day cere- 
monies began with the address 
of welcome, given by Nancy 
Dunn, president of '46. The en- 
entrance of the Freshman Tree 
Day Mistress, Grace Gere pre- 
ceded the procession of the Se- 
nior Tree Day Mistress, Allene 
Lummis, and her escort: Marion 
Campbell, Elizabeth Eliott, Eliza- 
beth SomerviUe, and John O'Con- 
nor Strickler. 

Mowgli Pageant 

The dance pageant opened 
with the joyful jungle life of 
Mowgli and his friends: Baloor,

Hears Talk by 
Dr. MacAllister 

Speaking at the Italian Eve- 
ning, May 15, in Shakespeare, 
Professor A. T. MacAllister of 
Princeton University declced 
that "Italy stands today as never 
■before at the crossroads of her 
destiny" and that the United 
States can and should help to 
shape that destiny. 

Professor MacAllister, whose 
topic was "Italy and America: 
Yesterday, Today, and Tomor- 
row," traced the past relation- 
ships of the two countries, 
.stating that only recently have 
they come to any degree of un- 
derstanding. In the future, he 
said, this understanding must 
be broadened in all possible

To fill out the teaching staffs

College Groups 
To Attend ISC 
Prague Meeting 

Twenty-five students repre- 
senting campus and students 
organizations throughout the 
country will attend the Inter- 
national Student Conference in 
Prague from August 17 to 31. 
The American Preparatory Com- 
mittee under the direction of 
Alice Horton ''15. is selecting the 
delegates and taking charge of 
the plans for the conference. 

A preliminary conference was 
held in November, 1945 in Pra- 
gue, where 500 delegates from 51 
countries met to discuss the 
problems of student exchanges, 
student relief, and student re- 
sponsibility for keeping the 
peace. The need for much closer 
cooperation between student or- 
ganizations of different countries 
for the solving of these prob- 
lems, was stressed. The confer- 
ence called for this summer will 
have as its main task the estab- 
lishment of an international stu- 
dent organization. 

The American Preparatory 
Committee is composed of repre- 
sentatives of the Student YMCA 
and YWCA, B'nai Brith Hillel 
Foundations, United States Stu- 
dent Assembly, Intercollegiate 
Youth for Democracy, Student 
Federalists, and the Association 
of Internes and Medical Stu- 
dents. Seventeen delegates will 
represent these organizations,

"If you don't know what "heavy 
as lead' means, you'll soon find 
out." announced Miss Hannah D. 
French. Research Librarian, to 
prospective patrons of the Libe 
hand-printing press. Miss French, 
who supervises the press, de- 
clares that, if nothing else, hand- 
printers learn patience. 

Although a veteran of two' 
years of printing, Miss French 
is not invulnerable to "catastro- 
phic accidents." Recently she 
dropped a whole form of type, 
the work of several days, and 
watched .t "jumble up in a heap j 
on" the floor" — amounting to a ; 
printer's version of a "pie." 

Wellesley scouts hauled the 
press from Chicago after (wo 
years of intensive searching. A 
true relic of the past, it is exactly 
like that used by Benjamin 
Franklin except that it is made 
of iron instead of wood. 

"The whole purpose of the 
press," emphasized Miss French, 
weary from floods of demands, 
"is to give the girls an idea of 
what goes into the making of a 
book or the Book-Arts." The 
Book-Arts laboratory, squeezed 
in between the Pierce Memorial 
Room and the Modern Langu- 
ages Room, is "not to take the 
place of a printing shop. The 
stress is on the actual process, 
and experiencing the mechanics 
of the handicraft. The end is not 
the finished product." 

Rhyme Sheets 

From the press are issued the 
signs and announcements prom- 
inent in the Libe, book plates and ■■ 
rhyme sheets. The book plates 
are really labels, with decorative 
borders of all designs, effected 
by tiny pieces of type. Copied 
from seventeenth century styles, 
they have the antiquated aroma | 
of elaborate monastic lettering. 

David Morton initiated the 
Wellesley rhyme sheets. Under 
his influence, Margaret Edwards 
'46, Susan Dorntge '48, and War- 
rene Coleman '47 produced their 
poems on these sheets. Miss 
French reports that she "strug- 
gled with Mr. Morton, pointing 
out that twentieth century dead- 
lines could not be met on a 
seventeenth century press." This 
regrettable fact cannot be under- 
stood unless one has actually 
laboriously sorted the type, ar- 
ranged the layout, applied just 
the right amount of pressure, 
and pumped the grotesque han- 
dle of the press. Hands from all 
over the libe bustled to prepare 
Mr. Morton's rhyme sheets. 

Each minute letter must be 
put in place. That the paper is 
hand-made necessitates first wet- 
ting it and then waiting for it i 

partially to dry. And then, "an 
infinite number of proofs must 
be made.'' Miss French recalls 
disconcerting readings of "cook" 
instead of "book." 

Imported Paper 

This temperamental paper for 
printing is imported from Fa- 
briano, Italy, where it has been 
turned out by hand since the 
thirteenth century. The craft is 
know in the United States, 
though undertaken in England 
and the Continent. Caslon and 
Century type are used. 

Many history students have 
streamed to the Book Arts lab 
which contains a small li- 
brary of books about binding, 
printing, illustrating, and other 
Book Arts. To show the possi- 
bilities of the field, many ex- 
amples of fine printing are dis- 
played. Because of a lack of 
space, the libe's materials for 
binding books by hand cannot 
be utilized. * 

The libe printing press is not 
intended for the Wellesley hur- 
rier. But, according to Miss 
French, not only printer's ink 
but also a great deal of experi- 
ence and satisfaction may be 
gained from it. 


Lambs Frolic

Amidst frolicing spring lambs 
and a flower-decked arbor, the 
sophomores held their "Spring

Slavic Society Collects 

Books for Polish People 

At Recent Club Meeting 

Helen Studzimska, Polish vio- 
linist, played for the Slavic So- 
ciety at an open meeting May 20. 
Monday. May 20. 

The purpose of the moeting 
was to collect textbooks, novels 
and dictionaries, for the Poles 
who are in desperate need of 
every kind of book. If anyone 
still has any books that they 
could donate, Joan Brailey "47, 
President of the Slavic Society, 
urges that they give them to 
her as soon as possible. 

Madame Belinska, a Polish 
Wellesley graduate who is now 
with the Polish legation, sug- 
gested the meeting. During her 
visit here a month ago, she ar- 
ranged this program for relief 
purposes. — 

According to Gerda Lewis '48, 
Vice-President of the organiza- 
tion, Slavic Society hopes to get 
Koussevitzky for one of its pro- 
grams next year. She also looks 
forward to a larger membership 
and more activities. While the 
Society has a recognized constitu- 
tion, it is still in the experimental

George Lantzeff, of the Depart- 
ment of History founded the or-

the language courses have social 
clubs, representing the main

"we thought a Slavic Society was 
needed to represent the countries 
that are the least understood and 
are really extremely important 
in world affairs."

♦The Snake Pit' 
A 1946 Bedlam 

Critic: Deborah Newman '/ f 8 

In 16th century: England, 
Londoners went to visit the luna- 
tics housed in the famous Bed- 
lam. Mary Jane Ward, author of 
The Snake Pit, takes her readers 
on a trip through a modern Bed- 
lam. Miss Ward's protagonist, 
Virginia Cunningham, spends a 
year at Juniper Hill Hospital re- 
covering from a mental collapse, 
and by cleverly disclosing the 
thoughts of her chief character 
the author presents the process 
of treatment which finally leads 
to cure. The result, to say the 
least, is astonishing and shock- 
ing. The Snuke Pit is not a book 
for the squeamish. 

One cannot be sure just how 
much of Miss Ward's novel was 
created from her imagination 
and how much is the result of ac- 
tual experience. But the picture 
conveyed of "a mind that was 
on vacation" is quite realistic, 
and therefore it can be assumed 
that the author has not taken 
the liberty of creating the piece 
purely according to her . own 

By setting down the haze 
of bewilderment in Virginia's 
clouded mind Miss 4Vard has 
managed to paint a revealing 
portrait of a mentally dis- 
eased person. The pathetic ra- 
tionalization which Virginia at- 
tempts in order to explain her 
circumstances, the wanderings 
which her mind embarks upon, 
aud the transitions into moments 
of sanity are extremely well 

Satire or Sane 

There is a good deal of irony 
about these people who are di- 
vorced from the ways of the out- 
side world. The insane at Juni- 
per Hill seem to be completely 
without inhibitions. They give 
vent to their desires, they see 
others as animals, they mimic 
unconsciously. They learn to 
share with their fellows, a virtue 
which gradually departs as they 
become cured. At times their ac- 
tions appear to be a satire on 
supposedly sane persons, and it 
is easy to see that the differences 
between sanity and insanity are 
not so great as one would like 
to imagine. 

Apparently there is some con- 
fusion ' in Miss Ward's actual 
opinion of Juniper Hill and the 
methods of treatment employed 
there. She has taken her title 
from the ancient snake pit, into 
which primitive peoples lowered 
their insane in the hope that the 
experiment which drove "a sane 
person out of his wits might 
Bend an insane person back into 
sanity." The title, plus the hor- 
rifying conditions which existed 
at the hospital might imply that 
Miss Ward has intended her book 
to be an eye-opener to the vari- 
ous institutions which claim to 
cure the insane. 

Conditions Recorded 

But Virginia does become 
cured after undergoing such an 
ordeal, and she attributes her 
final cure not to the sympathetic 
doctor who has gently tried to 
help her but to the unconcerned

On The Town . . 

Cyrano dt Bergerac is on the 
Boston stage again, this time 
starring Jose Ferrer at the Co- 
lonial Theatre. It's the only open- 
ing of the week, but such old 
standbys as Bloomer Girl and 
The Voice of the Turtle roll on 
with successful engagements, 
and there's even a chance of get- 
ting tickets. 

The Boston Pops Orchestra is 
on hand for a concert every 
night and always promises a de- 
lightful evening. It offers a laud- 
able combination of musical and 
physical sustenance. 

This weekend is a big one for 
baseball with the Red Sox return- 
ing in triumph. Saturday and 
Sunday the Sox will go to Fen- 
way Park to meet the Yankees, 
the only team that is anywhere 
near the Beantown leaders in the 
American League. 

We wonder if you've ever 
taken in some of Boston's foreign 
restaurants on those dinner-in- 
town nights. The Athens-Olympia 
is especially good, with marvel- 
ous food hiding behind mystify- 
ing Greek names. Try some of the 
meat cooked on, long spits, and 
make sure that you include back- 
lava in your order. 

Movie theaters have a good 
array of new shows at this point:

Tierney in Dragonwyck, and

and not a scientist. Miss Ward 
has chosen merely to record 
rather than to pass judgment. It 
seems hard to believe, however, 
that the author can condone such 
practices as the shock treatment, 
"the tubs," the disgusting lack 
of facilities, the general harsh- 
ness of the staff, and the sick- 
ening atmosphere which per- 
vades the hospital. 

Masterful Writing 

Miss Ward has proven herself 
to be a keenly observant writer, 
with a mastery of detail. She is 
able to single out simple yet 
vivid items to impress upon the 
reader's memory. Her dialogue 
is natural, and the suspense she 
creates over the process of Vir- 
ginia's cure is excellent. 

But one must remember that 
The Snake Pit is not an accurate 
scientific discussion of psychia- 
try. It is merely one person's 
unique account of the treatment 
of psychosis.

ture combined the best features 
of the small color sketches. 

The largest polychromes were 
traced on tissue paper and from 
these slides were made. The girls 
then projected the slides onto 
the beaver board and traced 
them. And now, as they balance 
on ladders and high stools to 
reach murals that hang from the 
ceiling and lean on high easels, 
they are nearing the end. 

Quizzed on why Shafer and 
Munger were being so favored, 
Diane Hawkes explained that 
since they were the two "most 
newly decorated dining rooms, 
we thought they were the logi- 
cal places to put them." This is 
the second year that the Art 
Composition class has worked 
towards a practical objective. 
Last year the class painted the 
murals which now decorate the 
walls of the Well. 

Milland, Goddard 
Star In 'Kitty' 

Critic: Jane Lamb '47 

One of the few superior films 
that have recently been produced 
is Kilty, starring Paulette God- 
dard and Ray Milland. Adapted 
— quite a bit -from the novel by 
Rosamond Marshall, it is the 
story of a beggar girl's success 
in eighteenth century London. 
From every point of view it is an 
| excellent and realistic production. 
Thomas Gainsborough first 
finds Kitty, dressed her as a 
lady, and paints a picture that 
sets all London agog wondering 
who she is. Ray Milland as Sir 
Hugh Marcy is enchanted by 
Kitty, posing in her costume, but 
he is shocked to discover her to 
be a "guttersnipe" after all. 
However, he gives her a job as 
maid, in spite of all his unpaid 
bills. Seeing the success of her 
portrait, Hugh decides to take 
advantage of Kitty's beauty by 
training her to be a lady, so that 
she can marry the Duke of Mal- 
munster. Then Hugh will be able 
to regain the job from which the 
Duke had fired him. 

Marital Problems 

Kitty has a great deal of dif- 
ficulty learning "society man- 
ners," and when she finds out 
Hugh's design, she rebels. But 
to get Hugh out of debtor's 
prison, she marries a wealthy 
ironmonger, who pays the debts. 
After her husband's death, she 
agrees to marry the Duke, for 
Hugh's sake. Finding that Hugh 
does not appreciate her nor the 
sacrifices she has made for him, 
she decides to marry young Lord 
Carstairs, after the death of the 
Duke. Hugh objects at last, and 
leaves Kitty to choose between 

Although the plot may seem to 
resemble that of Pygmalion, act- 
ually the emphasis is upon Kitty's 
life as a lady rather than upon 
the process of her transforma- 
tion. The film is enjoyable mere- 
ly for the scenes of action, but 
these scenes skillfully reveal the 
character of Kitty and of Hugh 
in such a way that they become

USSA Passes 
Resolution For 
Saving Food 

Students representing 77 col- 
leges and many secondary 
schools met in New York City 
at the Fourth Annual Conven- 
tion of the United States Stu- 
dent Assembly from April 26 to 
28, and passed a resolution to 
aid in combating the world-wide 
food crisis. Wellesley delegates, 
Michal Ernst, Virginia Beach, 
and Virginia Guild attended the 
Convention, at which Michal was 
elected President of the USSA. 

The resolution, passed by the 
Convention, is as follows: 

"Because war and drought 
have left in their wake the spec- 
tre of mass starvation in Europe 
anr 1 Asia; because this country 
has not yet fulfilled its food com- 
mitments lo these undernour- 
ished peoples on the closely 
screened minimum diets on 
which these commitments were 
based; because the American 
people are eating nearly twice 
as much as their fellow men, 
women, and children in other 
countries; because the voluntary 
program has not proved and can- 
not prove adequate; we pledge 
that we will strenuously urge 
our college administration to fol- 
low this food conservation pro- 

1. Serve a famine meal once to 
to make college students rea- 
lize the terrible inadequacies 
of European and Asiatic diets; 

2. Cut our consumption of wheat 
by 30^0 by observing wheat- 
less Tuesdays. 

3. Save 10% of fats and oils by 
boiling and broiling our food 
instead of frying it. 

4. Serve less ice cream so more 
fluid milk will be available for 
canning and export. 

"We further sign this pledge 
so that along with thousands of 
other students we will be repre- 
sented in Washington in a stu- 
dents' delegation to urge Presi- 
dent Truman, Secretary Ander- 
son, and the Congress that: 

1. A rationing system of these 
ciucial commodities be insti- 
tuted immediately because it 
is now agreed upon by all 
that the food shortage will 
continue into next year; 

2. United States shipment of fats 
and oils be increased, by a 
10' increased set-aside order; 

3. United States export more 
fluid mill;; 

4. The OPA shall be extended to 
prevent black market opera- 

5. A wheatless day be proclaimed. 

6. We support UNRRA's activ- 

Organization on Campus 
"We further resolve to or- 
ganize on our campuses the send- 
ing of packages of food to in- 
dividuals in hungry countries 
and collections of money for the 
sending of such packages." 

The seventy-seven colleges rep- 
resented at the convention are 
now canvassing their campuses 
in an attempt to get signatures 
on the above pledge before Mav 
25. On this date, a small group 
of students representing USSA 
will leave for Washington, where 
they will confer with President 
Truman, with Secretary of Agri- 

New Display 
Shows Art 
From Italy 

Tea sets and a table center

Muriel Emley '48, are currently 
on display in the library. 
These pieces were embridered 
by the youngsters in 36 or- 
phanages that are sponsored 
by Scamo Con Vox, a charitable 
organization in Italy. 

This exhibit, sent to Muriel by 
her mother, president of Scamo 
Con Voi, represents one of the 
phases of handwork and other 
trades taught the children to en- 
able them to become self sup- 
porting. The orphanages, run by 
a group of nuns, care for and 
teach children from eight to 
seventeen. Benefits from sale of 
the work are used to buy the 
children's clothing, food, house 
furnishings, and materials for 

Native flowers embroidered in 
pastel colors on the organdy set 
are examples of the creative 
ability of Italy. To demonstrate 
the continuity of this present 
day handwork with that of the 
past, the exhibit includes several 
illustrations of thirteenth cen- 
tury Italian art and an expla- 
nation of Italian lace making.

Air Enthusiasts 
Describe Their 
Flying Lessons 

by Carol Remmcr '^8 

"There I was, sitting in the 
sky, and he said, 'You take over.' 
And me with only a half-hour of 
flying time!" said Roz Marble 
•48, one of the flying Wellesley 
students who have been taking 
to the air at the Norwood Air- 
port, Norwood, Massachusetts. 
Roz, weathered out by both wind 
conditions and a case of jaundice, 
has had only two lessons so far. 
Wind, it seems, has a great 
deal to do with keeping the 
Piper Cubs on the ground as well 
as with blowing them away once 
they are off the ground. In two 
lessons, Roz has learned not only 
about wind conditions but such 
things as not to taxi straight 
down the runway, but to zigzag 
back and forth, saying "I can't 
see the propeller and would hate 
to raise the mortality rate at 
the field." 

Advancing at this rate, Roz 
needs only six more houis before 
she solos. At this point, she still 
prefers flying when the instruc- 
tor, who sits in front of her with 
his own separate controls, keeps 
his hands down. A violent wav- 
ing of his hands means that the 
student is on her own, which can 
be disconcerting. 

Pate is Hopeful 
Jane Pate '47, says modestly, 
"I haven't progressed, but I will 
on my next lesson." Pate, with 
three and a half hours so far, 
has advanced to stalls (power 
on and off), take-offs, and land- 
ings. She plans to complete her 
lessons at home. Pate thinks fly- 
ing over Massachusetts at a 
speedy 60 m.p.h. is fine, but is 
confused by the use of lakes as 
landmarks since there are three 
lakes near the airport. 

Pate admits that she gets air- 
sick and uses Mother Sills' Air- 
sick pills as a remedy. The pills 
make her even sicker, but Pate 
is valiant. The only thing she 
really complains about is that 
her arm has developed a major 
Charley horse. Wellesley has only j 
taught her how to pull back on a i 
pencil instead of on a stiff control | 
stick. Stick and throttle working 
and pull, Pate's instructor is still 
recovering from the last lesson 
when, instead of pushing the 
throttle in all the way, she pulled 
it out and killed the engine. 

Jane, Roz, Ellen Watson "47, 
Alive Cox '46 and Lois Haldi- 
mand '47 are among those tak- 
ing lessons at Norwood Field 
where flying instruction is $12 
per hour and a flat rate of $98 
is the price of soloing. For a 
license, one must have ten hours 
of dual flying and 30 hours of 

Sally Gamble '48, has six and 
a half hours of flying* credit at 
the Wiggins Airport in Norwood. 
Sally says that "It's all so simple 
when you think the instructor 
is handling the controls, but it 
becomes awfully hard when 
you're on your own." 
First Landing 
"I'll never forget my first land- 
ing," said Sally. "You go through 
all the motions of 500 feet and 
then try it on the ground. I was 
so busy levelling off that I didn't 
realize I was still ten feet off 
the ground. It's amazing how 
hard and bumpy a smooth run- 
way can be!"

For all who feel cheated about 
Float Night, especially those 
who have worked so hard on it, 
Marie Vallance '47, Head of 
Float Night, announces that she 
hopes very much to see the 
same floats and preparations 
used next year. 

Because there were no senior 
floats entered, m this idea could 
be carried out very smoothly 
next year, Val pointed out. All 
the Hansel and Gretel floats 
have been stored away for fu- 
ture use. 

Val declared that the college 
could not afford to give Float 
Night this year. By calling it 
off. the college was able to pre- 
vent a financial loss by collect- 
ing the insurance which would 
not have held for any other 
nights but Friday and Saturday.

the central interest. 

The actors are extremely well 
chosen, and even surpass what is 
expected of them. Miss Goddard 
interprets the character of Kitty 
as if she knew what she was 
talking about, and Milland is al- 
most equally familiar with the 
role of the dissipated aristocrat. 
Constance Collier as Lady Susan 
is especially commendable. 

The dialogue is often actually 
witty, a rare accomplishment in 
movies these days. The individual 
scenes are also very well done: 
such as the Duke eagerly going 
through the succession of ante- 
chambers to see his new-born 
son, and Lady Susan teaching 
Kitty how to fan "angrily." 

The music, costumes and set- 
tings.are likewise very good. The 
one fault is that the settings in- 
clude too much; nothing Is left to 
the imagination. But the film is 
a fascinating record of eighteenth 
century art, decorations, and cos-

cited, for the call from the niags

developments for her. But firjj 
let's get the facts in order ^ 
that the events of May 1J.J 
make sense: 

In the autumn of 1944 Sue, Hkfj 
many other ambitious g| r ]j 
started a lengthy try-out poi-iojj 
for the College Board of iiforf CBl , 
oiselle. But unlike the majority 
of said girls, Sue became Fiction 
Editor of last August's Collegi 
Board issue. That was the begii 
ning of a friendship with the per 
sonnel of the magazine, part icy 
larly George Davis, Fiction Edi 

In December Sue sent 
Davis three stories which he crit 
icized for her. T^hen this Mart

that she send in to the annua

All of which brings us up 
the evening of Monday, May lfl 
when Mademoiselle called Sue 
asking her to work with ihera 
this summer as assistant asso 
ciate editor. ("That's actual!

plained Sue. "I'll have to con

Sue confessed she was in a daJ*

Faculty-Student Agreement 

Whereas the students of Wel- 
lesley College desire to assume 
individually and collectively a 
responsibility for the conduct of 
students in their college life, 
and whereas it is believed that 
such responsibility if given to 
the students will make for 
growth in character and power, 
and will promote loyalty to the 
best interests of the College, the 
President and Faculty of Wel- 
lesley College, with the sanction 
of the Trustees, do hereby au- 
thorize the Wellesley College 
Government Association, and do 
charge this Association to exer- 
cise the powers that may be 
committed to it with most care- 
ful regard for both liberty and 
order, for the maintenance of 
the best conditions for scholarly 
work, and for the religious life 
of the College.

Charming Hawaiian — 
American novel by a Hawa- 
iian Poet anil Novelist* 

"Sweetest, loveliest, most glor- 
ious book I have ever read. 
Others seem ordinary and 
trivial by comparison. So 
beautiful it seems sacred; so | 
convincing and powerful, it ; 
washed the memory of all in- 
ferior books from my mind. 
Was never so fascinated by 
anything in my life. 

Every page sparkles with 
enchantment. A cascade of 
wisdom and beauty, revealing 
so much information of spec- 
ial value to girls. Like im- 
mortal music, it leaves you 
stunned by its indescribable 
glory." Miss Geraldine Saul-

Around the Vil Student's Aid 

Hi there! BifVsing around 
the Vil this week we discovered 
the most original assortment of 
summer play clothes just in at 
Gross Strauss. For bike riding, 
hiking, or lounging, nothing is 
newer or more comfortable than 
Gross Strauss's mountain climb- 
ers' in green, brown, and navy. 
Wear these with bright suede 
ciclla— jersey shirts. If you are 
planning a summer by the surf 
the ideal outfit is blue denim 
"clam-diggers" ana tomboy 

Do we hear wedding bells 
ringing? It's not far till June. 
You happy brides-to-be will be 
glad to know Makhanna's, the 
trouseau shop, has a few hard-to- 
grt bridal sets— sneer organza 
and chiffon with lace and taffeta 

Candlewick Cabins has asked 
us to tell you that they are 
closed on Saturdays and Mon- 

For last minutes appointments, 
split-second connections at the 
station, or for leisurely driving, 
call College Taxis. 

It took a long time coming— 
you Southern gals will agree- 
but warm weather is here at 
last. And with it comes all the 
bathing suit, playtogs, and 
Hill and Dale new cottons. For 
dresses, you will find all you 
want here. 

The Trains may ignore us here 
at Wellesley. but Le Blanc Taxis 
never. For their dependable serv- 
ice call WELlesley 1600. 

Happy shopping!

Gives Clothes 

Students' Aid Society is con- 
stantly receiving clothes and 
shoes from interested alumnae 
and friends of the college, to be 
given to girls receiving scholar- 
ship aid. According to Society 
officers, the clothes closet is 
"bulging with attractive evening 
gowns, dinner dresses, afternoon, 
sport and day clothes in various 

The Society would like to find 
new owners for these clothes be- 
fore vacation. Interested stu- 
dents are asked to call at 344 
Green Hall any day Monday 
through Friday from 9:30 to 4.

than any faculty tardiness: grad- 
ing for effort. The student who 
has done her honest and intelli- 
gent best, who has spent an 
average of two hours of careful 
study and active, brain-stirring 
thought on each lesson in a 
course, should receive, be she 
bright or be she dim, an A. The 
one who troops out to the sun 
deck proclaiming that she just 
can't possibly get her paper 
done, interrupts her conversa- 
tion from time to time to type 
a few words, and after half an 
hour wanders off to the Well (I 
watched a Senior do it the other 
day), would get, from me, an F. 
Those who spend time but no 
thought would rate a D. The 
others would range in between. 
The real beauty of this system 
lies in something definitely 
new and revolutionary: the stu- 
dent could grade herself. Obvi- 
ously she would know much bet- 
ter than anyone else how much 
attention and thought she had 
put into her studying. And she 
could report the grades to her- 
self at whatever intervals 
seemed most vital to her career; 
two weeks, a month, two months. 
. . . And thus there would be a 
general saving to the academic 
world of time, newsprint, and

Grade Thyself 

To the Editor: 

To the Neivs's bitter remarks 
on faculty procrastination there 
are various possible replies, 
ranging from a shamed hanginp 
of the head to proud defiance 
(Assuming, of course, that onl.. 
the guilty would reply > I 
should like to beg the issue 
completely by offering a counter 
proposal for the consideration 
of the student body. 

Since the students' interest is 
obviously in grades, and not in 
collections, comment, or rebut- 
tal, (how many students read 
the corrections before sliding a 
returned paper into their note 
books? How many refrain from 
making a mistake a second 
time?) I wish to suggest a very 
simple, system of grading which 
may prove much m 'influen- 
tial . upon a student's career" 

Friends Service 
Hospital Units 

A program designed to give 
college-aged students an oppor- 
tunity to serve In mental hospi- 
tals, discover the overall and in- 
dividual needs of the mentally 
ill, and work with them to learn 
methods of helping them is be- 
ing offered by the Institutional 
Service Units of the American 
Friends Service Committee. 20 
South Twelfth street, Philadel- 
phia. 7, Pennsylvania. 

Participants in the program 
will receive board and room, 
maintenance and laundry, and 
the prevailing wages of about 
$70 a month or more. 

Classes in mental illness and 
patient care and psychiatric lec- 
tures on the development of 
prognosis and behavior patterns 
are offered. 

Unit members live in group- 
housing accommodations with 
rooms for as many as three per- 
sons. Assistant Directors are in 
each unit for counseling and 
work guidance. An A. F. S. C. 
representative is also available 
for educational contacts. 

Three hospitals and one wom- 
en's reformatory are included — 
Rockland State Hospital, Orange- 
burg, N. Y.; Philadelphia State 
Hospital, Philadelphia, Pa.; and 
New Jersey State Hospital, 
Trenton, N. J. 

Emotional stability, maturity, 
good judgment, intelligence, and 
understanding of the needs of 
others are qualities needed for 
this social work. All those inter- 
ested should write to Phoebe 
Bailey at the American Friends 
Service Committee's Institution- 
al Service Units Headquarters,

"We still have pledges to 
Thayer '47, head of Service Fund, 
worthy organizations both here 
and abroad, including large 
amounts to war relief organiza- 
tions, which are needed there im- 
mediately," said Kathy, pointing 
out as an example of the appre- 
ciation with which apropriations 
which are received a letter writ- 
ten March 29 by Ismene Audon- 
ios Phylactopoulos, Wellesley 

"I was very much interested in 
a clipping from the Christian 
Science Monitor," writes Mrs. 
Phylactopoulos, "a Wellesley girl 
wearing a sandwich board adver- 
tising the campaign for Athens 
College on the campus. ... I 
know that each dollar subscribed 
to the schools of Greece is of 
greater importance than even 

"During the war our Athens 
College boys stood out in every 
service and on every occasion 
because they'd been given the 
chance in this school to develop 
just the needed qualities. When 
we get discouraged about the fu- 
ture, we get a great deal of com- 
fort out of the thought that 
there is still education through 
which this country can be re- 
built. . . ."
